Hispanic man jumping into swimming pool

This lifestyle and concept stock shot of an Hispanic man jumping into a swimming pool was truly nerve wracking for me! The model came up with the idea of jumping into the swimming pool form the second floor balcony. I really didn't want him to do it. For one thing, that was the shallow end of the pool. And think of the consequences if something went wrong! Yet he was insistent. Actually, the shot really embodies his joy de vivre attitude towards life. So, what the heck, I let him go for it...but I told him only once. The image is truly a contradiction. It is an image about vitality, but also about risk. It is a stock photo about celebration and about excess and about foolishness.

Shooting stock photos in foreign countries

Shooting stock photos in foreign countries is great fun but requires even more planning and preparation than shooting at home. Different cultures have different attitudes about time, about showing up, and about follow through. This image was shot in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Three of us photographers banded together, rented a large vacation home, stayed there and used it for a location for our shoots. We shot for three days. My shoot was a bit more of a challenge than usual. It seems I left the charger form my ProFoto 7b battery pack strobes back home! I managed to get almost a full day's shoot out of the charge I had, but the rest of the trip I had to rely on available and ambient light. I used lots of reflectors and slow, really slow shutter speeds. I focused on as many outdoor shots as possible and when shooting indoors worked very close to the windows. In the end it all worked out well and I actually was proud of the job I did.
